I have, for many years, been a fan of strategy games. I will not waste words with this review, and I am not prone to exaggeration, so take this literally. While a few people (though not a very large amount) would disagree, in the view of myself and a vast amount of the gaming community Starcraft is unquestionably the greatest strategy game ever created. Slightly dated it may now be, but no other game has found such a pin perfect balance of strategy, gameplay, single-player storyline, multi-player intensity, depth, variety, replayability, and everythign else you could ever want. Any player keen on strategy should buy this game without hesitation and stick with it (it won't take long) until they've found out why its so many peoples top game of all time.
